How to Make Ham and Diced Tomato Fettuccine Alfredo
Ham and Diced Tomato Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe
Ham and diced tomatoes taste great together. You can use either a ham that you cook yourself or a ham that you purchase that is already fully cooked.
If you choose to use a fully cooked ham, be aware that during the holidays, many companies such as Omaha Steaks offer a free, fully cooked ham with a minimum purchase. Maybe you can take advantage of a deal like that.
My favorite brand of bottled Alfredo sauce is Classico. Using this sauce makes the dish come together quickly and easily.
- Alfredo sauce
- Cook fettuccine pasta according to instructions. I like to use Mueller’s brand pasta. This brand of pasta tastes fresh and delicious.
- After the fettuccine pasta has cooked in the boiling water, drain it.
- Drizzle with a tasty cooking oil such as canola oil or olive oil and add some spices if desired. For example, I like spicy food and I typically add garlic and crushed red pepper to my portion of this dish. If you are offering this dish to children and you like spicy food but you do not want to give the kids too much spicy food, then you can simply add the extra spices to your portion alone. You can also add the spices to the meal portions of other grown-ups that you are serving if they desire it. Wash a few tomatoes. Then cut up the ham and tomatoes into small pieces. Add the cut up ham and cut up tomatoes to the pot of fettuccine and stir.
- Lastly, add the contents of an entire jar of sauce to the pot and simmer for just a few minutes. Then turn off heat and remove pot from stove. Stir well.
